For some minor map features, I would want only the symbol, not the 
polygon. For example, mappers could start drawing bus stop shelters from 
Bing aerial images. The shelters would be smaller than the Garmin map 
resolution, and thus the POI would be enough.

That would scratch your itch (I would use mkgmap:generated), but it 
would not solve the use case that I outlined above. Obviously, 
add-pois-to-areas cannot consider areas that are not defined in the 
polygons file. Maybe if the polygons file contained a special 'no 
operation' rule, no polygon would be generated, but add-pois-to-areas 
would still generate POIs.

Best regards,
